How to Depot Your Eyeshadows

21 Aug

What does it mean to “depot” your makeup?  It means taking the product out of the original container and putting into a palette.  It saves space and allows you to further organize your collection.

There have been some eyeshadow casualties along my journey on learning how to properly depot (RIP).  Now that I’ve figured out an easy, full-proof method, I wanted to share. It could save eyeshadow lives!  Continue reading

The weekend is coming to an end.  How was it?  Did you fill yours with lovely memories?  Mine was busy and filled with the state fair, school and working.  Doesn’t that sound like fun?

Check out some of my favorite posts from the week!

Arantha over at Gourmet Beauty shares the absolute, bestest, greatest, at home treatment for your face.  Image Skincare is

Attention Twilight fans:  Elvira over at Pink Sith shares a foundation that will give you Edward-like skin (which is good or bad, depending on your point of view…).

Have you guys tried the Too Faced Lipsticks yet?  I haven’t, but after watching Marlena over at Makeup Geeks review I’m dying to try them.

Looking to expand your beauty horizon?  Check out 10 YouTube beauty gurus featured on Life Wtih Aly.

Have you ever thought of trying microdermabrasion?  Raging Rouge gives a wonderful breakdown on how it works and what to expect (the esthetics student in me approves).

Watch Adri over at Liquor Lube and Lipstick get totally smashed(boxed).  I love her lovely (and easy) tutorial using Smashbox products!

I have been wanting to post about this for ages,  but Future Derm beat me to the punch.  This post is wonderfully written by John Su, he breaks down the differences between the chemicals in SPF.  A MUST READ.

I hope you guys have a great week!  Remember to drink H20 and wear SPF.  And I will leave you with that.

*This website will be down for 24 hours, starting at 5AM UTC (12AM CDT) on 8/20/12.  Lots of changes are happening here at Peace Love and Glitter (claps like a seal)!*

Canadian Beauty Find: Annabelle Eyeshadow

16 Aug

I went on a road trip to Canada earlier this summer, and being the beauty geek that I am, I was excited to head to the drugstore to check out their cosmetics.  I saw lots of the same brands that we have here in the US, but there was one inexpensive brand that caught my eye.

Annabelle Cosmetics.  Even better?  They were on sale!  I picked up a few unique shades and was happily on my way.  So, did the cheap price mean cheap quality?  Continue reading

Makeup for Beginners, Vol. 2: Foundation

15 Aug

There are thousands upon thousands of makeup foundations out on the market.  Some claiming to “brighten and tighten” the skin.  Some even claim to take 10 years off of your appearance!

Can one product really do all that?  Well, it comes down to the age-old saying, “if it sounds too good to be true, than it probably is.”  Foundation can’t do the same thing that surgery can.  However, that’s not to say it doesn’t serve a purpose.  It can improve your appearance and even help protect your skin.   Continue reading

Dreamy Cream with LUSH

14 Aug

Do you remember your dreams?  I usually do after I first wake up, but after I get up and begin the day, they somehow disappear from my memory.  Although, there are a handful of dreams that I remember that I had when I was a kid.  How is that possible?  Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are walking around in my head, messing with my subconcious…

Well, Inception talk aside, lets talk about a dream what I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.   Continue reading

MAC 167SH Brush, Review

13 Aug

Makeup trends come and go, but a good brush always has a place in your collection.

I picked up this little guy (no seriously, it’s little) on a whim.  I knew I didn’t need another powder brush, but the limited edition siren was going off in my head.  I didn’t want to miss out on something that could potentially be wonderful!  So, did they little guy disappoint? Continue reading

What I’m reading:

Amazing Olympic inspired manicure from Nailasaurus.  She is so talented, my clumsy hands can barely do a regular mani.  My life is terrible.

A $6.00 makeup remover that’s BETTER than Lancome’s Bifacial?  Shut the front door. Brittany over at Clumps of Mascara gives us the rundown.

The Beauty Department shows us a fun new way to apply eyeliner called “scalloping.”  Would you wear it?

I love love love eyebrow products and Cute and Mundane has an excellent review of the new Makeup Forever Aqua Brow.  It’s now on my need list, I need this!

We all know we need to take care of the skin on our face, right?  Sasha over at Crowsfeet Cupcakes and Cellulite tells why it’s important to nourish other parts of the skin.

Nicki over at The Cosmeholic gives a solid review and gorgeous swatches of the MAC Ruffian lipstick collection.  Ruffian Red = BEAUTIFUL.

At Makeup and Beauty Blog, Karen shows us the Sonia Kashuk Fall 2012 nail polishes.  They look amazing, and for less than $5?  Please and thank you.

Did you guys party hard this weekend?  I sure did, if “party hard” means wearing clay face masks and attempting a home manicure on my couch.  It was crazy.  My life is awesome.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday 🙂
